Tough Week

I mentioned in my last post that my diverticulitis was back, but not too badly. I was wrong. It's been horrible. I have been just SO sick and, not only that, the pills I've been on have given me a horrible case of nausea. Bleah. :( Add to that the fact that something is affecting my thyroid levels (those same pills perhaps?) and you have a case for one sick, cranky woman. I've been very cranky and I really don't like that, but it hasn't been something I've been able to control. Truly, when my thyroid levels plummet so does my attitude.

I wasn't able to make it to my Wednesday morning Bible study, but I tried really hard. I got up and was very sick to my stomach. I made pancakes with Bisquick and thought that would make the stomach nausea pass, but nope. I really felt bad that I wasn't able to go. I also missed my prayer meeting this morning. I always feel so bad when I can't make it to my studies or prayer at church. I always feel like I'm missing something I could have learned and, of course, I miss the fellowship with my sisters in Christ.

On an up side, I've spent some great time with my husband and children. Thankfully, my family loves me even when I'm cranky. :) I was able to spend some quality time talking with my hubby which I love. I also spent some time with my children playing our favorite online game (NOT Warcraft - just thought I'd clarify that). I'm very, very blessed that my children like to play games and spend time with me. We also spent time talking and sharing what's happening with us.

Today my youngest son started his physical therapy. I'm praying, praying, praying that this really helps him and alleviates his pain completely. He liked what they did today and said that it was gentle, which is a far cry from the other physical therapy he had. I went along to make sure that nothing was done that would hurt him. Yeah, just call me Mama. *grin*

I work tomorrow at the church office. I think I'm going to be well enough to go, thank goodness. I am going to call my doctor that deals with all the intestine issues (can't think what his title is right this second) and just get a consultation with him about why I'm having these problems more now. It really stinks getting old - have I said this before? :)

God bless you - Julie

Brittany and I like to play games too like this...since we can't get on the floor and play with our young children anymore...we have to find other ways to interact with them. Hope your feeling better today my dear friend...thank you for all of your you happen to know how I can find Kristy's new blog?
